Ingredients

AmountUnitsItem
1
cup
rolled Oats
muesli bar
1
cup
sunflower kernels
1
cup
dessicated coconut
1/2
cup
wheatgerm
1/2
cup
seasame seed
1
cup
sultanas
125
gram
butter
1/2
cup
honey
1/3
cup
brown sugar
Servings: 16 bars

Instructions: 

  1. Grease and line a 30x160x280mm pan with paper.
  2. Cook all dry ingredients in frying pan over medium heat until golden. Transfer to bowl to cool.
  3. Cook butter, honey and sugar in saucepan over medium heat, stirring. When dissolved bring to a boil then simmer without stirring for 7 min, or until forms a soft ball when a small amount is dripped in ice-cold water.
  4. Add sultanas to dry ingredients (when cooled), then add liquid, combine well.
  5. Place mixture into pan and press down with metal spoon.
  6. Cool overnight then cut into squares.

Notes:

  • They taste great.
  • Important to press down well into pan. Spend several minutes with the back of a large spoon pressing down and zig-zagging across the top, then around the sides.
  • I make a double quantity which fits into a shallow tray 440 x 300. This makes 48 muesli bars that I make into two bricks 6 x 4 layers. Place grease proof paper between layers. Probably good to make half bricks, as one brick weighs about 800g.
  • I use dehydrated sultans, cherries, pears, apricots and apples. Any dried fruit is good, chopped into small pieces.
